the george w. bush administration took office in 2001, the altair voyager was caed the condoleezza rice. dr. rice was a long time board member of chevron when george w. bush hired her to be the national security adviser. she had a tanker named after her. yeah, the former oil executive president picked the ceo of halliburton to be vice president and the board member of a chevron who had a tanker named after her to be national security advicer. it was a different time. pity poor chevron because when the bush administration took office, chevron faced the prospect of having one of its oil tankers floating around the middle east or off the coast of nigeria or something with the american national security adviser's name painted in big letters on the side of their tanker. that's awkward. that was awkward even before iraq. so chevron decided in 2001 they would change the name of the condoleezza rice. it would no longer be the condoleezza rice, it would instead being the altair voyager, which is the name of a star, a noncontroversial star. now the woman who once had her name painted or so it would s
extreme speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin's not very popular in this country, especially with certain constituencies that they are trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time, in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa that he's going to need for his base. >> sure. >> so he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very difficult spot there. does liz chainy do damage to her credibility saying that sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans that will honestly say that. >> that was kind of over the top. she was trying to clean up for her old man and show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea party was a
george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewers here in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the "today" show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about everything. here he is switching on the british olympics

in the united states. going back over the last ten years, since george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewer here is in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the today show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen
in the first six months, they are comparable to president george w. bush. of course he won in 2004, but that was the first presidential election after 9/11. the big issue was national security and the big issue now is the economy and, to have these disappointing numbers is a trouble spot and it means president obama has to attack mitt romney, out of touch and doesn't care about the middle class and it will be a negative campaign and close race. >> jamie: thanks to the brain room for keeping us on top of accurate numbers, john cleary today. we were discussing, he and i, of the last four months, three of them we have been at 8.2% and here's the numbers of job created in the first six months during an election year. re-election for these candidates. 8.2%. what are the expectations of the american people come november? >> i don't think much will change between now and then, the president has to make the case the economy is getting better, a little better and there is more work to be done but the -- earlier this year the economy was looking a little stronger and if you go back to the ye
than george w. bush. >> no. they were avoiding bush, but now he's embracing bush. but i guess when you get in trouble in england you have to do what you have to do. >> it's better than insulting an entire nation. >> you can understand this. because i think the best advice came from e.j. deon. he wrote in his column that the next phase of romney's foreign trip, he says sure he may get better press on the latter parts of the trip -- later parts of the trip. perhaps he'll score some political points in poland and israel. but on the whole and this is what i agree, i think romney will want to stay away from foreign policy. the more we talk about it, the better obama will do. one of the first laws of politics is the thing that your opponent is strong in, keep it off the table. >> try to turn it into a weakness. but you can't turn obama's foreign policy into a weakness. this is the first time in a long time i can remember that a democrat is super strong on foreign policy. that's something he can hold up as a trophy. this i did well. so romney stuck with let's keep it about jobs and economy. i
work quite well for george h. w. bush, attacking michael dukakis' jobs record in massachusetts saying he claimed there was a massachusetts miracle, it wasn't living up to -- to -- to the numbers. same things with bain capital here. if he is running as somebody who create jobs, we found real humans who lost their jobs because of decisions he made. make it so people don't trust him to build the economy and then they are given a choice for president they are toll rating and somebody who can't be trusted to reverse the trend. >> so okay, i want to pick up with something it is kind of an x factor that few people are talking about. you, dave, have in a recent post how the third party can have a major impact even with just a few votes. you cite the elections with both al gore and john mccain. talk about that and how third party candidates can swing the electoral college. >> well, if we are looking at an election where the incumbent is trying to disqualify the challenger, part of that -- people are just going to be dissatisfied with both candidates. in 2008 they liked those candidates n 2004,
to a similar cover 25 years ago about george h.w. bush. he said he was a pretty good present. he said he has never been called a wimp before and said he doesn't lose any sleep over the criticism. brian? >> peter alexander traveling with governor romney in jerusalem. peter, thanks. >>> former vice president dick cheney said it was a mistake for senator john mccain to pick then alaska governor sarah palin as his running mate back in '08. he says she just wasn't ready to take over the top job, a bomb line qualification for a v.p. selection. >> i like governor palin. i've met her. i know her. she's an attractive candidate, but based on her background, she'd only been governor for about two years. i don't think she passed that test. >> of being ready. >> of being ready to take over. and i think that was a mistake. >> cheney went on to say the mccain campaign didn't handle the vetting process well, which, of course, is a perception the romney campaign is trying very hard not to repeat. >>> now we turn our focus to syria where violence continued to intensify today in that nation's largest city, ale
be like george w. bush having only been up 6 points in alabama over john kerry in 2004. that is too close. if you're an incumbent president and democrat you need to be killing in michigan, it needs to be a total wipe out for you. you should not have to ror reabout spending resources there. in the i70 and north corridor going out from pennsylvania all the way out to iowa up into wisconsin, michigan, those states he's got big problems. democrats had huge problems there in 2010 and president obama has the worst numbers among white working class voters who are maybe as much as 40% of the election threa electorate since walter mondale. megyn: if bill clinton were running they'd say, there i my guy. i love bill clinton, the boy from hope. if they don't connect with president obama is bill clinton getting up there andt me, he's o it? >> i tell you what he's going to say. he's pretty good, he's not as good as i was, but he's pretty good, he's pretty good. megyn: there is risk of that with president clinton, there is very real risk of that. >> that's what he does. you remember in the springtime wh
are occasionally necessary. >> eliot: kind of how george w. bush reacted to the meltdown in '08, a blank look as if i should i take note. >> an anomaly but not paying attention. >> eliot: matt taibbi, thank you as always for your time. steven colbert can make mitt romney's trip to israel as successful as his trip to england. view finder up next. rupert murdoch's phone-hacking scan l. admitted that that look, we were able to keep a lot of the folks because of the stimulus. >> bill: absolutely. again, do you great work, judd. thank you. all of your colleagues at think progress. we'll see you again next [ male announcer ] the inventors of twix had a falling out, so the production of twix was divided between two separate factories. left twix factory cascades caramel and chocolate onto cookie, while right twix factory flows caramel and chocolate onto cookie. today they share nothing but a wrapper and a driveway. try both and pick a side. i can't stand these spots. those spots are actually leftover food and detergent residue that can rede
of mitt romney. and they will put him in the pocket with george w. bush. >> right. >> and, you know, that's not where you want to be. >> certainly not. and there has been recent focus surrounding mitt romney, and joe, i think it is fair to say that this is a repeat. round three of the bush presidency. and the foreign policy is stock full of neo-cons who will take us back and fight wars here and there. where is the sense of new vision? >> there doesn't necessarily have to be. romney is running a campaign that is very much stealth, talking about issues in a vague kind of way. as governor of massachusetts he doesn't necessarily have a whole lot of experience, so he brings back in some old hands from the bush administration which had a wonderful foreign policy -- being sarcastic there. >> oh, yeah. >> you are talk about john bolton who famously talking about lopping off the top floors of the united nations, and kofer black who is one of the top haunches of the cia before september 11th. and he was also vp of black water. if that's your all-star team then you have serio
was having a george w. bush flashback with mitt romney, a string of gaffes and bluster and all of this stuff. from the bush administration. >> it is true. when you look at his foreign policy advisers, 17 of the 24 who are listed on his campaign site were bush officials. and a lot of his rhetoric, when he does lay out a position is sort of harking back to the policies that we saw and i think in many cases failed in the bush administration. >> stephanie: the bush years we all remember so warmly. michele, thank you for your time this morning. hope to talk to you again as the campaign rolls along. there she goes, michele flournoy >> he criticized islamic countries for voting in islamic leaders. >> stephanie: how dare they. >> mormon elders? >> stephanie: wow! is there anyone he hasn't pissed off this week? [ applause ] >> comparing the -- the gdp between israel and palestine. palestine is being occupied by israel. >> stephanie: all right. more stinky poor people to him. okay. 58 minutes after the hour. right back
george w. bush, i'm the daughter of liberian immigrants. liberian immigrants had a deferred action program that worked very well for many years. there is even a song out where liberian immigrants thank george w. bush, and that being one of those reasons. but i think we have to be, you know, really specific about the community we're talking about, these young people who are future scientists, doctors, lawyers, contributing to american society, aspiring citizens. rick: understood. >> and prioritize the prosecutions. martha: let me just say i think it's very important to focus on who we're talking about. and there are very, very many worthy individuals, and that's who the program is designed for. i think it's great that the worthy individuals could qualify for some relief. the concern is that there could be an individual who is 28 years old at the prime recruiting age for al-qaida who lies to the government, said he's been in the country since he's 7 years old and that individual just by saying he went to high school is now eligible to work in the united states. we've seen how the mex
since 1988 when george h.w. bush carried it that year. look, we see the likes of joe biden now spending a lot of time in pennsylvania. let's not forget, go back to 2008, wolf, when president obama back in 2008 said that very ill-fated phrase. he said people are clinging to their guns and their religion. that is something that will not play very well in pennsylvania. but also in pennsylvania it also shows that in fact when you look at these numbers right here as far as television advertising right now, we've seen barack obama is spending money right now. more than $3 million right now, wolf, he is spending on tv advertising so far to carry his message. >> yeah. he doesn't want to take any chances. by the way, he said those less than artful words out in san francisco. >> he did. but it carried back. >> everybody heard it immediately all over the place. thanks very much. >>> take a look at this. we have some live pictures of the president of the united states in sandusky, ohio. there he is at the top of your screen in the middle there. he's shaking hands, meeting with folks. the president
. amazing. and george w. bush won't be there either. remember his offcamera endorsement of romney from behind a pair of closing elevator doors? well, this is no surprise. the bush/cheney years left a smoldering mess. alicia and chrystia, let me ask you quickly. what do you think about bush and cheney not showing up contrasting with clinton giving the primetime speech? >> it means the toxicity hasn't worn off. they are staying away as much for themselves as for the party. >> you know, i think it also shows something quite surprising for me about the top republicans. and we saw this in the cheney/palin fight that broke out. they are known for being the well organized, unified team. and i've been surprised at the level of public bickering we've seen into the campaign. this should be an election easy for the republicans to win. the economy after all is incredibly weak. >> the fact that bill clinton and barack obama is going to give this picture of unity and bush and cheney cannot do that, clearly gives an advantage to the president. but do you also think the fact there's such statements ma

insular campaign. one of the problems mitt romney has is very much like what george w. bush had, which is a great deal of loyalty to his staff. and doesn't necessarily cut strings when it's time. i'm concerned about eric fehrnstrom and he gave the etch-a-sketch remark and internally romney people seem to be saying they're upset with him for doing that. at the same time, though, the president up until the supreme court gave him a win last week had a significant series of bad weeks. polling isn't going well in the battle grounds. even cnn has him behind mitt romney in battle grounds. and no one wants to talk about should barack obama's team do this. i don't know if it's fair to talk about mitt romney's team when they're neck and neck in the polls and he hadn't done anything wrong in the past few weeks. >> right. and this is a campaign being run out of massachusetts so there are a lot of consultants wanting in. but to change your campaign at this point would be so destabilizing and demoralizing. you want to reach out and grow your campaign is what i think i'm hearing eric say. but when yo
came to washington-- you write about it-- some years ago, and met president george w. bush for the first time. and did that live down to your expectations? >> he lived... well, he was someone i wouldn't have voted for. his policies were not mine. but we came from the kennedy center awards, which was incredible honor, being a british person, i was bestowed this honor. and my partner and i, david, came, and we were so pleasantly surprised by george bush and his knowledge of aids. david and i and laura were social. they were so friendly and so courteous. and he was passionate about aids, and we had a ten-minute talk at the interval of a concert at the kennedy center about aids, and i was astonished about well-informed he was and his commitment to aids. and so it's the typical thing of don't judge a book by its cover until you've read the book. >> ifill: you are here in washington at this international aids conference, and you are also meeting people here on capitol hill about what they can do and what they can continue to do. do you find that government intervention is in the
